Global Awareness Statement
The St. James Academy community offers a multicultural curriculum to promote intercultural understanding and respect. Students are encouraged to take intellectual risks, to challenge their own assumptions, and to work cooperatively in order to understand and synthesize different points of view inclusive of gender, religion, national origin, and socioeconomic status. These pursuits create and sustain a culture of inclusion grounded in the SJA mission.
St. James Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or ethnic origin in the administration of education policies, admission policies, scholarship and flexible tuition programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
